    TransPac navigation...
    From: Russell Sher

    I noticed with some interest that, according to our local sailing magazine,
    a requirement for the TransPac race is that navigators fix their position at
    least 4 times during the race using celestial navigation. This seems like a
    small victory for celestial navigation. Has anyone heard more about this
    decision? I don't know of any other races where it forms a requirement
    during the race.
    Our Cape to Rio race requires that a sextant, tables and timepiece etc. be
    carried unless the vessel has two, independently powered, electronic
    position fixing devices (typically GPS of course).
